Storyline

Adam is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he loved once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach... a girl named Eden. Their childhood flirtation becomes an impossible love. But when he catches a glimpse of grownup Eden on television, nothing will get in the way of getting her back... Not even the law or science!

Goofs

When Adam and Eden try to escape from the police for the second time, near the end of the movie, Adam is holding Eden on his shoulders jumping through the big blocks of stone. When a man fires and hits the wire that holds the stone where they're standing, they fall down and Eden grabs the chain with one hand, and Alan with the other one. Then she is forced to let Adam fall down, but doing it, the gravity of her planet should attract her and cause her to fall in the opposite direction of Adam. You can obviously notice that this doesn't happen: Adam falls and Eden is still holding herself to the chain to avoid falling down in the same direction of Adam. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Adam: The universe, so full of wonders. I could spend hours and hours looking up at the sky. So many stars, so many mysteries. And there's one very special star that makes me think of one very special person. Now let me tell you my story.

Beautiful fairy-tale
13 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

The film's setting is magnificently beautiful, there are a lot of stunning ideas and images and the main story is good enough to make the two-planet world look real. The one and the only one flaw of the film is that it pretends to be a sci-fi film rather than a fairy-tale in an unusual setting. If you judge it as a sci-fi you will find a lot of "how could it be" things that tear the imaginary world apart. The actors are great and it is fun to see Spall as a protagonist friend rather than foe. Both Sturges and Dunst are wonderful. So if you want to watch a sci-fi film you better avoid "Upside Down". This is a love story set in the fantasy world. No more, but no less.
